Nasri writes off Arsenal as title challengers!

There are a few ex-Arsenal players that have left the club on bad terms, but definitely one of the most annoying has to be Man City’s Sami Nasri, who just seems to revel in upsetting his former fans.

Today he has been spouting off that Arsenal have no chance of winning the Premiership, and considers Man City’s biggest rivals to be Chelsea this season.

“I think Chelsea will be the biggest threat,” he said. “For me, Arsenal still have a weakness in defensive midfield and at centre-back.

“Chelsea’s signings have really caught my eye. Cesc Fabregas is a great replacement for Frank Lampard, I know that from playing with him at Arsenal. They had a weakness up front so they’ve signed Diego Costa who was great for Atletico Madrid last season. They lost Ashley Cole but bought in Filipe Luis.

“For Arsenal, Sanchez has the quality, but the Premier League is not La Liga. It is really, really hard. We saw that with Mesut Ozil last year. At the start of the season he was brilliant but he found out when every other league has a break in December, you carry on playing in England. We had the same with Stevan Jovetic at City.”

So now we all want to destroy City and the moneygrabbing Frenchman today, and I’m backing Alexis Sanchez to be the Leagues top goalscorer!

Is Sagna right to blast Arsenal fans for `greedy` slur?

I am not sure if it came as too much of a surprise to Bacary Sagna that some of the Arsenal fans took his decision not to sign a new contract with the Gunners. The fact that he also decided to move to one of our biggest Premier League rivals, Man City, must have made him think of the recent sagas with the likes of Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie, but maybe not.

Because the France international seems to have been taken aback by being accused of greed by some Gooners. And when you read what he says in an interview with John Cross of The Mirror, it appears that the Frenchman has a good point. Sagna reminds us that, although his contract with his new club represents a huge jump in his weekly wages to £150,000, he stuck with the Gunners for seven seasons on much less money than he could have got elsewhere, with no trophy to show for it until the FA cup win at Wembley last season.

Sagna said, “First of all, I want to clear something up. I keep reading many things about me, about my salary and me being greedy. But I’m not.

“I stayed six or seven years with the same salary at Arsenal. It’s clearly not for the money. Personally, I just wanted a change.

“I wanted a boost in my career and I think it was the right time to do it. It was a difficult thing to do, very difficult. For me, Arsenal is my family, it’s home. It’s the club that made me grow as a player and as a man so it was not easy at all.

“But I will say it one more time – I just needed a change.”

We should remember how quickly Ashley Cole abandoned the club and the manager who developed him, when his wage demands were not met. Then you have players like Nasri and Fabregas who made it very difficult for the Gunners not to sell them, for whatever reasons.

So I think Sagna is right to be upset about the accusations of being a mercenary that have come from a seemingly small section of Arsenal fans. I still think he should have stayed with us, because Pablo Zabaleta will make it very hard for him to get a game, but I cannot condemn him for his decision. Can you?

Arsenal didn’t want me anymore!

The Manchester City player Samir Nasri has claimed that the long delay in offering him a new Arsenal contract convinced him that he wasn’t wanted at the Emirates. Nasri, it would be recalled, left London in acrimonious fashion back in August, 2011.

The 26-year old attacking midfielder joined Arsenal in 2008 for a reported 12 million pounds. Upon joining the club, Nasri disclosed that Wenger was the main reason for his move to England.

‘The fact that Arsene Wenger gives great opportunities to young players is very important for me,’ he said at the time, ‘Arsene has a great reputation and he is one of the best managers in the world.’ Wenger had been scouting the Frenchman since he was 16 at Marseille’s youth academy.

At the end of the 2010-11 season, Nasri’s breakthrough season, he transferred to Manchester City for 24 million pounds amidst anger from the Arsenal fans. They felt betrayed and declared him public enemy number one.

In a recent interview, Nasri revealed that it was not his decision at all. ‘What happened is this” he said. It was my best season with Arsenal. We were in October (2010) and the manager asked me whether I wanted to stay at Arsenal. “Yes, I want to stay at Arsenal.” I said. ‘We wait, we wait, we wait. We arrived in June; I have one year left on my contract.’
Manchester United were also interested in the Frenchman but he claims to have rejected their offer in favour of their city rivals.

Man City man backs Arsenal to lift FA cup!! Is he fishing?

If Samir Nasri gets his wish, and Arsenal win the FA cup, it will mean that those Arsenal players that he abandoned have had a more successful season that him, for the first time since he left in 2011. His new team Man City also won nothing last season, but they still finished above us in the Premier League.

The reason Nasri says, in a Telegraph report, that he is really hoping that the Gunners knock down theur last obstacles to a trophy, is that he feels that Arsene Wenger has been treated badly by the media, the Arsenal fans and especially by the Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

I would have to agree with him, although I am a bit less in agreement when he says that money was not the reason he left Arsenal to join Man City. Nasri does let himself down a bit later when he talks about what anyone would do if offered triple their current salary.

Anyway, if Arsenal do win the FA cup, as we should, I wonder if Nasri might start to think he made a mistake. We were above his team for most of the season and we know that it could have been so much better, was it not for the dreadful injury problems. I wonder if Nasri is already thinking about winning over the Arsenal fans in case he gets a chance to come back…..hmmm

What would Arsenal do without Santi Cazorla?

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Arsenal’s Spanish magician Santi Cazorla and although he has confirmed that he is happy to remain with the Gunners, you can never be too sure in football these days. Now I don’t want to cause a major debate or argument because it’s highly unlikely that Cazorla will be joining the much interested Atletico Madrid, however should another offer come around can you be certain he won’t leave?

Before we go any further here are the quotes, in which he states his response to the on-going reports surrounding the Spaniard with a move back to his homeland with Athletico Madrid.

Cazorla said, “There has been a lot of speculation about a move to Atletico Madrid but I’m very happy at Arsenal, I have a contract there and I start training on Monday. Perhaps I will return to Spain one day, but right now it’s very unlikely.”

So we can all be relieved at the fact he won’t be leaving us for his currently interested suitors however there is a few things I wish to pinpoint about these quotes and what it would mean for Arsenal. Cazorla is in his prime right now and at 28 he will soon be approaching his last big contract, which is usually offered around 29 or 30. Also at that age, it tends to be the last few years of your career at the very top level and if I’m correct Cazorla is yet to win anything at club level. If an offer came from Barcelona or Real Madrid, I could see him seriously considering it and as a very talented player I would not be surprised if this happened.

Now like I said, I don’t want to cause controversy but I’m simply saying that any move away from Arsenal this summer by Cazorla, or in fact any other top player at the club, would be the final nail in the coffin confirming that we have no real statement of intent or ambition, and lastly that we have simply become a selling club.
Ever since the Invincibles squad began to depart, every player to leave has gathered success one way or another and ultimately the latest departures of Van Persie, Nasri and Fabregas has labelled us as a selling club and one in decline and if anything that’s what I fear most because it could lead to a spiral of events that leaves us down with the likes of Liverpool for some time.

Samir Nasri shows he’s a good loser (NOT!) with four-letter rant!

The ex-Arsenal traitor Samir Nasri has shown the world that he still hasn’t grown up despite being saying at the end of last season: “I’ve matured, I’m now a champion in England and can handle these pressure situations,”

Nasri became a figure of hate for Arsenal fans after he forced Arsene Wenger to sell him to Man City and then followed it up by many anti-Arsenal comments during the season.

He proved he was still a pain in the a*se when he was asked for his post-match reactions after France’s defeat to Spain last night. He was reported as responding that “you journalists are always looking for s—,” while also shouting at the media crowd to “go f— yourselves, you sons of b—-es; now you can go write that I was poorly raised.”

Well I don’t know about being poorly raised, but I do know he is an overpaid idiot with an over-inflated ego who will never get a job as a diplomat!

Nasri still thinks he is better off with Man City!

The war between former Arsenal player Samir Nasri and Arsenal fans, especially the outspoken Piers Morgan, continue after the beating that City was handed by Arsene Wenger’s team yesterday.

A few Twitter attacks from Arsenal fans got the better of Samir Nasri who counter attacked, making things surely worse than they were when he left the club.

The French midfielder left in a terrible circumstances last summer, and Piers Morgan never forgave him for leaving the club for what he called to be “personal motivation”. According to Nasri, he didn’t leave for City’s money, but for a chance to win the trophy, and it’s exactly there where Morgan, amongst others, attacked him.

“Just wondered how that trophy cabinet’s coming along?”, tweeted Morgan, while Nasri replied with: “I’m aware what I said about titles. I’m sure I will lift a trophy with Man City before Arsenal.”

“And to all the Arsenal fans, move on. City are 10 points ahead of you. Just support your team and forget about me.”

This is sure to light up the war once again, and Nasri will probably never be able to play a game again on the Emirates Stadium without having every fan out there turn against him.

Do you think that Nasri deserves to get battered by Arsenal’s fans?

Na$ri – Let’s discuss me leaving Arsenal when I have a trophy at the end of the season! HaHa!

I couldn’t resist posting this interview with Samir Nasri that was published last August (In fact it was the day that Arsenal were beaten 8-2 by Man Utd and Nasri’s City were top of the League)

He was asked if he left Arsenal for his 200,000 a week wages or because he wanted to win trophies, and he replied: “Let people think what they want. I know my choice and I know it is a choice about football.”

“We will see at the end of the season when we lift the trophy and we will talk about my choice again and I will show everyone who was thinking it was about money that they were wrong.”

Would you like to talk about that choice now, Mr Bench-Warmer? Or would you prefer to discuss it when Arsenal overtake City for Second Place? HAHAHAHA!

Samir Nasri is an idiot

Former Arsenal player Samir Nasri accused Frenchman Arsene Wenger of “overplaying him”. According to the French attacking midfielder even though his form was much better when he played for the Gunners, he wasn’t feeling as good as he does now playing for City.

Arsenal’s fans accused the French midfielder of leaving the club for pure financial reasons and for choosing City’s money over his own desire, but according to himself it was about something much different than that, he prefers to send his time on the bench!

“At Arsenal, I played too much.” Nasri whined.

“I score less than at Arsenal, but I don’t have the same role.”

“I came here to win the title, play at the highest level and I’m improving.”

Nobody is vitally important for a team like Arsenal, but unfortunately Samir Nasri’s very late departure left the Gunners uncovered in the midfield. Fabregas’ move to Barca added to that, so we can understand why Arsenal’s season was such a poor one, and frankly speaking we could either blame the players for leaving or we could blame Wenger for not preventing this or not bringing in some quality replacements within a timely fashion.

Nasri will forever be a player less favored by the Gunners fans despite having proved his skills at the club. His scandalous departure erased all the good things he did for Arsenal, and this statement won’t help his case at all.

I seriously hope that Arsenal overtake Man City for second place before the end of the season.

Samir Nasri – Arsenal need to learn to ‘Win Ugly’

The ex-Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri refused to sign a new contract at the Emirates last season and Arsene Wenger was forced to sell the French international to Manchester City for £24million in the summer.

Nasri has had trouble breaking into the City first team after some indifferent performances and has only actually played the whole 90 minutes for City nine times since his arrival, but still thinks he made the right decision to leave Arsenal and is now ready to show his best.

He said: “I never doubted I made the right choice in coming here and we’re top of the league and still on course for the Europa League too so I’m happy

“What Arsenal do doesn’t matter, it was just my choice. I don’t want Arsenal to fall down.

“I wanted them to win the FA Cup or something because I’ve respect for them.”

But he says that the reason the Gunner’s don’t win trophies is because of their failure to win if their ‘beautiful football’ doesn’t work.

Nasri continued: “It’s football. Sometimes it’s good to win ugly.

“You don’t always have to play good football to win.

“Arsenal play good football but after seven years they don’t win so that’s difficult for them but the manager has a good philosophy. I know they’ll find some solution.”

Surely it’s still important to play good football as well as winning Samir, and surely it’s better to actually be ON the pitch however the team plays!
